I’ve enjoyed resin modelling for many years. Here’s a recent project. Westerfield provides a kit for Great Northern 42000 series, 1925 vintage automobile boxcars. These cars were originally equipped with 1½ wood doors and Murphy corrugated ends.
George Toman shares his progress on a special HO scale model. Here are his notes.
While attending the 2017 RPM Chicagoland meet I received a mini-kit for a Chicago Great Western 40-foot boxcar. This car had proprietary Pullman-Standard “Carbuilder” corrugated round corner ends that were once available from the late Stan Rydarowicz. The car ends were made special for this min-kit by using new technology to create the masters for this kit. The new semi-scale coupler box parts are also included. These are made to fit the semi-scale Kadee #158 whisker coupler.
The Resin Car Works minions have been busy. The next release is an HO scale mini-kit that includes castings of Pullman Standard “Carbuilders” corrugated ends, decals, and a pair of the correct Tahoe truck sideframes for a Chicago Great Western boxcar. Continue reading New Resin Car Works products
